Hello,

I am doing development on a MIPS32 processor. However it failed to
boot when I try to use a boot loader to start the kernel in the
memory. The boot loader uses following command to jump to kernel entry
point in the memory:
         entryPoint = (void *) 0x8036a000;
         entryPoint();
I confirm the kernel image is able to boot up. Using JTAG debugger. I
set PC to the entry point of memory 0x8036a000, the kernel boots up. I
also disable the Cache before the jump.

Any idea on this issue?

Thanks,

Mike
